Benz tricycle starting
A Benz tricycle being started although on the day I filmed this it was being stubborn and did start eventualy. It produces a maximum of 0.75HP at about 400RPM running on floor polish. This polish/cleaner has naptha oil in it and this is what it would have run on when first built in 1886. Think of it as a stationary engine on wheels with a park bench on top!

1909 Cadillac First Start in 79 Years
This 1909 Cadillac was stripped down into a speed car, raced and then parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The restoration was put on hold for many years and then re-started a few years ago. After multple checks of the ignition and timing we finally achieved the first start on July 28, 2012. There is still more to do to tune the engine and sort it out for driving later this year. The spray on the first try happened when we left the primer cups open. It runs better with them closed. And the owner did make it a bit easier by adding an electric starter to the car. For more of the story see the HCCA Gazette, May - June 2009. To see how things turned out, see the related video, 1909 Cadillac first drive at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEy0KagVrIw

How to Start a Yamaha after it's been left for years in the garden
Here we have a 1985 Yamaha FZ750. It is the very rare 2GH model as ridden by Eddie Lawson in the 1986 Daytona 200 to victory with full livery by Troy Lee Designs. Sadly it has been left for years outside in a garden with the sea air/rain on it with nothing but a sheet over it. I have removed the petrol tank to access the fuel supply and have repaired some of the faulty wiring which probably was the cause of this superbikes demise. I am now going to completely strip the bike down and restore her to her former glory. BAD LANGUAGE while I welcome constructive comments, I will not tolerate foul language, swear words and any racist or other comments which may be deemed offensive to some people If you make any such comments that comment will be removed and you will be reported to YouTube my channel is viewed by young and old alike, please bear this in mind.

GMC CCW First Start in Decades
9-28-10 Another rig I picked up on craigslist for a song and a dance. The engine was rusted stuck when I got the truck (I pickled it with diesel fuel, reason for smoke). After running for an hour the engine cleared up. #4 cylinder must have a stuck valve still, as its missing and you can hear a pushrod tapping the side cover. This truck is a CCW not CCKW, it has no front drive differential. That is a puddle of garden hose water under the truck, (the truck was missing a freeze plug.

1910 Thomas Flyer Race Car
This 1910 Thomas Flyer has been restored to run the next Great Race. The car is now painted and made to look like the original 1907 car that won the very first Great Race from New York to Paris. The huge 6 cylinder car underwent a huge restoration to make the 2008 Great Race, before the race was postponed due to complications with the passage through China. The car is now complete, but this video was shot as soon as the car was roadworthy and before it was torn down for final paint and assembly. It was a special day to see this road veteran again blasting around town. These cars are awesome and you forget just how impressive they were until you see this beast roar to life and take to the highways. Time has change the styling of automobiles, but this car is absolutely timeless!

Vauxhall 10 - First start in 41 years
I'm afraid this is now for sale. Have a look at eBay and you will see - have a bid if you would like to own it. I'm afraid I just don't have time to do the work (and won't be hppy with a rough job if I rushed it) so it will have to go. See http://www.abs-zero.com (click through to 'the old site') and also the listing on eBay at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200946082683 (starts 9pm on Wed 24th July 2013). Thank you to everyone who has looked at this and taken the time to write a nice comment - they really have been appreciated. :-) I still own the other Vauxhall 10 and will keep that a while longer as it's already part restored. If anyone wants to see it, I'll make a similar video and upload it. My plan to have two Vx10 cars restored to pass on to my two boys will have to wait a while... :-) --- My new project - I bought this in September 2008 as a barn find - it had been stored in a barn for over 40 years. This is the first time anyone has attempted to run it, note the 6V electrical system being Boosted by a 12V jump pack - OK for short periods if the 6V battery is good. The fuel system is still unproven at this point, so running was achieved by pouring a small amount of fuel directly down the carburettor - there's no reason why it shouldn't fire up straight away in normal use, but here it presumably starts out flooded. Oh the joys of carburettored engines!
